Boulder has been our home for thirty years. We often travel to Africa on medical relief projects. We have two children and two grandchildren, a dog, a cat (neither included in rental--unless special arrangements are made) and fish in the pond. Charles is an AIDS doctor and Torkin has founded a poverty eradication project in Uganda called BeadforLife.

Torkin Wakefield purchased this house in 2009

A few years ago, after many years living in the mountain town of Gold Hill, we wanted to be closer to all the wonderful opportunities in downtown Boulder. We looked for two years until we found the really perfect home. It felt so like us we knew it was our next home. Imagine our surprise when the realtor called with the news we had been outbid and another family would call 'our' home theirs. Sure enough, 3 months later the new owner put it on the market as they were unable to make the finances work, and we were able to purchase what all along we knew was our lifetime dreamhome. And now you get to be at home here too.

Perfect Location near Pearl St. and North Boulder Rec. Center.

Comfortable natural spaces with lots of sunlight

Hot tub for long soaks

Gas fireplaces creates cozy ambiance

Beautiful outdoor space in back, perfect for entertaining

Dog door and fenced back yard

Fish pond with waterfall adding peaceful sounds to this beautiful yard.

FELT RIGHT AT HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We felt right at home from the moment we walked into the door! The house was warm and inviting with plenty of room to sit and relax. As a party of five, we all had our private sleeping quarters, all of which were very nicely laid out. The house has lots of windows bringing in a lot of natural light and there are live plants everywhere throughout the house. The back yard was very comfortable and serene with a fish pond adding to the very peaceful environment. We all felt very comfortable at this wonderful house and would not hesitate to stay there again in the future. We did not take advantage of the extra guest house in the back yard of this property but it looked very nice as well and adds more space for larger parties. With it being only a few blocks from Pearl Street, this was an ideal location in downtown Boulder.

ENJOYED BOULDER FROM THIS QUIET NEIGHBORHOOD RETREAT

  • 4 of 5
Our group of 7 came to Boulder for a wedding and booked a couple of extra days to see Boulder and its environs. This property worked great for us being close to a good market (the Ideal Market) and Pearl Street. It was very comfortable for our group of 7 and we enjoyed the cultural artifacts in the house. We enjoyed the outside area and cooked a meal on the BBQ that was nice to eat by the pond. The quiet neighbor site was great to come back to after a day of wedding festivities or sightseeing. Too bad that the hot tub was not working. We would recommend it to our friends.

SPACIOUS AND COMFORTABLE REFUGE

  • 4 of 5
This home was a spacious and comfortable refuge for our extended family during the "Thousand Year Rain" in September of 2013. We came from the four directions for the wedding of our son and his beloved bride, anticipating the outdoor Colorado beauty of the front range and Flatirons. When the rains came, and kept coming, this home was a dry refuge, beautiful, comfortable and homey with lots of space so we could spread out and not be in each others' way. The home is well-equipped, the kitchen is well-appointed, and the photos in the listing are accurate. Clean and well-maintained, the home is centrally located, and we found it easy to maneuver through the affected streets to find groceries, restaurants, and to arrange for alternative venues for the celebrations to be held. To clarify some of the description in the listing, please note that the "den" is a large room on the second floor, like a "loft." You must pass through the den to get to either of the other two bedrooms and to the 2nd floor bath room, which negates a privacy aspect for the den. Additionally, while the beds are all very comfortable, each of the bedrooms on the second floor have one full-size bed, a consideration if your group is composed mainly of adults. The den would be a good playroom if the children are supervised. The 1st floor master bedroom is luxurious and comfortable. During our stay, Boulder received 17 inches of rain, totally unusual for the area. But this home remained dry and basically unaffected due to its location. After battling our way through the flooded areas, it was a blessing to return "home" and be out of the elements but in a welcoming environment. We thank the owners and the property manager for being responsive, amenable and helpful. Though some of the amenities were not available to us during our stay (hot tub), & others were not usable due to weather (patio, walking to the Pearl Street Mall), the home's open spaciousness was appreciated for all the time that we needed to be indoors. This home is a wonderful advertisement for VRBO, and the other family members we entertained were very impressed. With so many of the restaurants closed, I would like to recommend Jill's at the the St. Julien for being so flexible and accommodating, as well as having good food! We would recommend this home to friends and plan to come back to enjoy the other amenities soon!

Owner's Response: Hi Sharon and Family,
I am happy that your family's wedding celebration was not harmed by Boulder's 100 year flood and that the house gave you a haven to return to. We look forward to hosting you at a further time.

WONDERFUL HOME IN BOULDER

  • 5 of 5
Our family was in the Boulder area for a family wedding celebration. We chose this house for our lodging and it was perfect. We walked downtown, we explored the area with hiking, we strolled through the community garden, always returning home to this beautiful place. It was very relaxing with the lovely backyard gardens. The Master Bedroom suite is gorgeous, the well-supplied kitchen met our every need, and the living spaces were comfortable. The owner was very accommodating as we had some special requests that she handled immediately and graciously.

IDEAL RENTAL FOR ENDURANCE TRAINING

  • 5 of 5
We rented Torkin and Charles' place for a week of triathlon training in Boulder, and we were very impressed. The location was ideal, providing access to the North Boulder Recreation Centre, mountain cycling, shopping, and open water swimming withing an easy walk, bike, or drive.

The house itself is extremely nice and kept up to a high standard. We particularly liked that there is a carriage house with a small but nice apartment above, which nicely accommodates someone who would like some privacy. The master suite is extremely large and nothing short of luxurious. The kitchen is well equipped and the athletes enjoyed cooking with the high-end gas range. The living room and family room provide plenty of space to gather and socialize. Everything was very clean. We especially enjoyed feeding the koi in the beautiful backyard pond. (just a little bit of the supplied fish food every day- too much makes them sick.)

Cassidy, the property manager, was extremely on top of things, knowledgeable, helpful, and easy to deal with. She gave us a detailed briefing when we arrived that covered all the bases, and promptly took care of any maintenance issues. It is great for one's peace of mind to have someone local, who knows what they're doing, to call if there's a problem.

All in all, we were extremely happy with our stay. It's a great house in a prime location. We would definitely stay here again.

WONDERFUL BOULDER EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriends and I stayed here for a "Girl's Weekend" reunion for three nights. The house is beautiful and perfectly suited for such a gathering! The open kitchen was perfect for cooking dinners at home and the gardens and tables in the backyard were just right for talking and sipping wine in the shade of the trees. The koi pond in the backyard also added a really nice ambience! We rented the carriage house, as well, which proved especially nice as the house only has 2 full bathrooms... but the carriage house gave us a 3rd full bathroom and another bedroom to spread out in. The house was very clean. We rented bikes and we all biked to Pearl Street. The house is 5 minutes to the mountains and we hiked up Dakota Ridge and down the Sanitas Valley Trail, which is a good choice for those out-of-towners who aren't used to the elevation of Boulder. This was a terrific house and I would recommend it to anyone!

Owner's Response: Hi Molly,
Thank you for such a lovely review. I am glad that you mentioned how well the carriage house helped you spread out. I know you get together with your girl friends occasionally. Please think of the Jefferson St. house in the future for your gathering. Happy summer.
